As Election Day approaches in the Maryland, a candidate for Montgomery County Executive and one for Governor of Maryland join us for the Politics Hour.
The divisiveness of the 2016 presidential election has prompted many Americans to question their country’s values and even those of friends and family. It’s a tumultuous landscape that the cast of “The Christians,” now playing at D.C.’s Theater J, embraces head on in a timely play focusing on a mega church that is torn apart when its pastor questions a core tenet of his church. Backed by more than a dozen choirs from around the metro region, the production bridges the region’s diverse interfaith community while taking on some of the most contentious themes of the day. Kojo explores the community effort behind “The Christians,” and finds out why its themes resonate in our current political climate.
- Gregg Henry Director, "The Christians" (Theater J); Artistic Director, Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival
